If you are looking for a comfortable, affordable and simple stay during your holiday in McLeod, please opt for Kareri Lodge. A small, quaint and pretty place with just 6 rooms, staying at Kareri was different from any previous hotel stays. Without any of the fanciness of hotels, the experience was very homely and we got great advice from the... More

I stayed here while I was attending Dharamshala International Film Festival. This place is a good budget hotel that gives you free wifi and picturesque views of the mountains. This Hotel is at walking distance from Mcloedganj square.

After a very troubled last minute cancellation from AirBnB; we managed to book Kareri Lodge. Ram uncle was kind enough to offer us a room at 6 am in the morning..The rooms are well maintained and the view is spectacular. We were a bunch of 5 girls so were very worried about safety. But Ram uncle and Kundanji were very... More

Our stay at Kareri lodge was very pleasant. There were some problems: plumbing issues, a little mold (difficult to avoid at peak monsoon season) and when the rain was really pouring; some seeped into the rooms. More than compensating for all this were the clean rooms, the staff's helpfulness and good cheer, and the and the breathtaking views (when they... More

They say good things come in small packages. This is actually true in case of Kareri. Stayed for about five days on the top room of the 5 room hotel and what a pleasant experience it was. Stunning views, great location - near centre but far enough to keep the noise of McLeo out. The Owner and the staff were... More

Situated on a quiet lane away from the noise and crowds of the main square. Very peaceful and feels very safe as a solo female traveller. Ram and his two staff make... More

A nice property with great views and location. The rooms are spacious with clean washroom. The staff is really courteous ( regards to Kundan Ji). Make your trip more enjoyable by booking it. Need to do the advance bookings as the number of rooms are very limited. Will love to visit again, if got a chance.

We had a terrible experience in one of the hotels, where we were staying, but once we left, we found Kareri Lodge, we stayed in room no 503, The room was beyond our expectations considering the price of the room. The view was magnificent as it was raining and fog. You could easily view Dalai Lama temple from the view.... More

The view from our room was amazing. We were three people and got the suite for a night. The hotel owner was very friendly and welcoming. We organised a hiking tour through the hotel. the guide was very experienced and spoke excellent English. There is no heating in the rooms but we borrowed radiators as it gets pretty cold during...
